ok.  I think for things like helix-update/redcarpet and the conf
tools, the maintains of those packages should arrange for their
desktop files to be wrapped by gsu automatically.  

But ya, I agree, that if a user wants to run an arbitrary program as
root (or another user) should have a nice tool to magically create 
the desktop files for them.  I have some ideas already.
